    Some Europeans have a taste for rice as you can see.

    Just wait till I post that 203 ute pic...

    The thing is that the 'ugly duckling' is a bit of a cult affair in Europe. Something many here wouldn't appreciate.

    More so in France, of course, where it's probably more numerous than the beetle.

    Well Guys,

    you won't believe me, I've starting 'ricing' up the CX. It now sport a plastic bonnet scoop mallet mallet

    Dunno if I'll leave it there, this scoop isn't supposed to pretend it's force feeding the motor, rather it's supposed to force feed the interior ventilation (and doing a pretty 'pretend' job of that too ). I think it's marginly better at highway speeds ...

    Plastic bonnet scoop on a 203?

    The Holden FJ one worked pretty well, too...

    Big thing about those older style ones, they didn't rely on a huge chamber being a part of the design and being sited and designed so it was a perfect area to start rusting the car out.

    don't you remember the early 203's flap that you could raise or lower that sat just in front of the windscreen ?

    Yeah, it was a copy of what most cars of the period had. Pre-war American cars, pommie cars, and as I said above, the early Holdens. Right up to the EK, as I recall.

    i assume there is a car in there somewhere..underneath the fibre. and paint...take it all of i say and improve your power to weight by at least 20%....little hint...i know its of the topic but relevant to cars that are so lowered and hard suspension-wise....front headlights tend to blow on them often because of hard suspension...not that u d get much light out of those anyway...

    It looks a bit like an old VW Polo at the rear...

    It's a Fiat Punto I saw a few modded ones in the UK. Not quite that heavily modded but still!

    Maybe the owner was completely unhappy with the Italian engineering??

    ....... yes its a Punto t-diesel, its from spain and the owner owns a body shop, he uses the car to promote his bussiness, that car is actually MILD, in comparisons to others i have seen inthe magazines i often get.
    Xq

    ps,..in france a nutty french man added one of those MAXI wide body kits to his 306, then went and widened all the arches again by another 4"'s!! the overall with of the car is now 3feet wider than factory and it has Gullwing doors and its fluoro PURPLE/PINK flip painted, and its deisel.lol!!
    ahhh even the french like the rice very well done.

    I know what rice means but is it racist. Did it come
    from asians doing up their cars and they eat rice so a link was formed or am I completely off the topic.
    I just wanna be careful which friends i use it around.

    two-oh-phillic,

    I think you're right, but I learnt the term from asian friends who talked about the 'ricey' things they do to their cars, so as such I've never thought of it as a racist term.

    Whatever the deal is, I eat rice too wink

    Hope that helps,
    Derek.

    I never lose any sleep over it; it's normally associated with cars of Asian origin being set up with pram handle spoilers, plastic "mag wheels" and stickers that all supposedly make it go quicker....maybe they work Often associated round our way with things like pink Hyundais with aforesaid "Go-go bits" or early model Corollas with "Turbo" on the windscreen or "bad assed boys like bad assed toys"....not a term associated with praise and admiration of the vehicle concerned.
    If they think it's racist, tell 'em to get a life after all, calling us "Froggy" which we do to ourselves is just as racist, as is "Yank Tank" and "Pommy."
    I would point out however, that "Wank Tank" referring to the types driving the 4WD oft the cause of much consternation & well deserved derision, is more a description of the driver & his/her driving habits than the vehicle they drive & hence is acceptable by most level headed motoring enthusiast as an accurate description rather than a racist comment. mallet mallet
